Note the use of the plural in the trail heading, Anderson-Watson Lakes. That’s because there are two Watsons (I presume) and several Andersons, though only one is really easy to get to. All of these alpine lakes are relatively easy to get to, are popular with families and allow fishing as long as you have a Washington State fishing license—all of which adds up to one thing: crowds. If you want privacy up here, visit during weekdays. Still, these sparkling lakes in a magical alpine setting are more than worthy of a visit.
